To ease back into working after my absence (which I do owe you an explanation for and will probably write something up later) while not having a huge project with potential to run away with me, I browsed through my inspiration folder and found a simple and elegant mask in the musica tradition of Venetian mask making.
I love the baroque look of so many detailed curls and swirls, here I used some PS brushes turned alpha by the talented Coy Dreamer, whose work I also used in my Volto Altezza and Altezzoso masks. But, I also love the three-dimensional look of my usual curlicues and sculpted filigree that I think I've become known for. With this mask, I tried to marry the two so they could blend together to compliment and enhance each other. Plus, it lets me add stones!
Twelve different stone colors
Six different mask colors
Happy Mardi Gras! Maybe I'll see you wearing it at my masquerade.
